Adelaida, 36 years old, is separated and lives in Gabayan, Lazi, Siquijor. She has two children who are in school.

From her desire to help the family, she engaged in a fish vending starting up with a capital of 3,000 PHP. It has operated for two years already.

Now, she is planning to borrow PHP 10,000 from Paglaum MP Cooperative, of which she became a member in 2013.

She wants to have a stall in the public market to display her fish. Someday she will be happy seeing her children finish their studies.
